We are a Host Congregation for Family Promise!

At our Annual congregational meeting on February 25, 2018, members of Church of the Holy Cross voted overwhelmingly to become a Host Congregation for Family Promise, which is continuing to build its work in East Hawai’i.

Family Promise began in Kailua, O`ahu, twenty years ago.  Congregations of all denominations provide 3 to 4 families with children (12 to 15 individuals) a place to sleep for one week per quarter.

Church of the Holy Cross is the third of thirteen churches needed to provide services in East Hawai`i, now projected to begin in early 2019.  The Neighborhood Place of Puna has agreed to be the sponsor of our local program.  Pastor Eric Anderson is on the Steering Committee.  Many church members have already signed up to volunteer their services.
